. legal immigration. we have to move forward with immigration reform, marco rubio. >> senator, forgive me for interrupting, but as we move forward on immigration, your words, are you prepared, and do you think a majority of republicans are prepared, to give some legal status, whether full citizenship or legal status, to the full 8 million people here in this country illegally? >> this is something that needs to be discussed and debating. we have been debating it and discussing within our policy lunches. marco rubio is raising a number of different ways we can deal with the issues we face on immigration. that's the backbone of our country. the sena i'm the son of immigrants, and thinking about this, my dad took me to john kennedy's inauguration when i was 8. he was a cement finisher, had to quit school in ninth grade. this country is built on hard working men and women, the sons and daughters of immigrants. immigration is key and important for our nation. >> senator barrassso, i appreciate your time. margaret, i want to start with you. cautious. republicans said let's get things done. but
to see that marco rubio has laid a lot of the groundwork by selling these principles. he's gotten great endorsement and support from some of the most right-winged pundit makers. now it's time to act upon it and grow it from there but it is basically the only thing happening in congress today where there is a bipartisan movement on both -- in both chambers and both sides of the aisle. >> but, ana, i've been hear about about marco rubio and the gang of six. why haven't we heard from them? >> timing is everything. you know what, don lemon? i wouldn't put money on them waiting on the president. the president's going to speak on tuesday. i wouldn't be surprised if these senators who are tremendously strategic and know how to play the political game and defend third bipartisan process, i wouldn't be surprised if they preempt the president, do it tomorrow, do it before the president does on tuesday. these are not folks that wait on the president. these folks act. >> so you think they may come out on monday. do you know something we don't? >> oh, i know a lot of things you don't. >> we'll see.
like marco rubio, for instance, and others, and also you have the chamber of commerce, you have some republican vested interest. i would say the budget and immigration are the two areas, spending and immigration. >> can he get through some simple things on gun control, if not a ban on assault weapons. that might be impossible with republican caucus, but universal background checks? some smaller things that polls show most republicans around the country support. >> yeah, maybe. i don't know. i would support it. i can't speak for the others. i would think there is a chance that maybe on gun trafficking some things and it may be watered down somewhat, but he could at least make some progress. there could be a bill signing and you get people together and that could make it better for the next year and a half after that. >> i want to ask you something i know that seems unrelated but it is very important for the president. it's on foreign policy but it's on what's happening now in north africa. we had benghazi and now algeria and northern mali with the french. does he need to do more with
in a brilliant manner. marco rubio who is part of this gang of six in the senate. they've been working on this from day one after the election. i think they're ready to come out with something. i think you're going to see that marco rubio has laid a lot of the groundwork by selling these principles. he's gotten great enzorsment and support from one of the most right wing pun makers. now it's time to act upon it and grow it from there. it is basically the only thing happening in congress today, where there is a bipartisan movement on both chambers and both sides of the aisle. >> the election is a long time ago, i've been hearing this a long time ago. why wait? why haven't we heard anything from them? why are they waiting on a president? >> because timing is everything. you know what, if i were you, i wouldn't put money on them waiting on the president. the president's going to speak on tuesday. i wouldn't be surprised if these senators who are tremendously strategic and know how to play the political game -- i wouldn't be surprised if they preempt the president, maybe do it tomorrow. ma
faced two members of the committee with similar ambitions. republican senators marco rubio of florida and a very aggressive rand paul of kentucky. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have releifed you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: but today also brought moments of sorrow. just days from her retirement, secretary clinton twice choked up, discussing the four americans killed that night. ambassador chris stevens, sean smith, tyrone woods, and glenn dougherty. >> i stood next to president obama has the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> reporter: later this afternoon, in testimony before the house foreign affairs committee, clinton was more subdued and mostly welcomed by republicans. >> i wish you the best in your future endeavors, mostly. >> reporter: though there were
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
, senator marco rubio a couple of days ago came out with his own plan, advancing, preempting president obama. and he's gotten great reviews from some of the most conservative members of the base and the conservative influentials. in fact, he's also gotten good reviews from the white house. when was the last time you saw that happen? >> i know. >> so, you know, we're in a pretty good place. it's got to be comprehensive because in a comprehensive plan, there is something everybody can find. there's at least one thing everybody can find to love and at least one thing everybody can find to hate. >> ana navarro -- >> that's going to be sticks and carrots. >> that's politics for you, right? consensus emerging in washington, immigration reform. why is a money show talking about immigration? because it's about jobs, growing an economy and getting a broken immigration system out of our way and immigration system for the 21st century. ron brownstein, ana navarro, thank you. >> thank you. >>> america thought it had fixed a broken immigration system before, giving people a pathway to citizenship. >> fut
cain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, and jeff flake. this would offer an immigration plan for millions here illegally, it would also have an employment verification. and cracking down on companies that hired unauthorized workers. the president, as you know, carol, will also be taking up this issue this week. he'll be heading to las vegas tomorrow. he met monday with the congressional hispanic caucus to sort of talk and preview this plan that he's already put out, but he'll be highlighting tomorrow. >> brianna keilar reporting live from the white house this morning. >>> also today, about two hours from now, president obama plans to meet with police chiefs and sheriffs from around the nation to talk about reducing gun violence. the police chiefs of newtown, connecticut, and aurora, colorado, saw their share of gun violence last year also expected to attend. even as the president convenes this meeting, a law enforcement backlash continues. a wisconsin sheriff is now encouraging citizens to take up arms and not solely rely on law enforcement for protection. >> with officers laid off and furloug
with marco rubio on immigration. >> the interesting thing about political capital is mandates that what you create as the president. you can create more and grow more if you do well and if the economy comes back. there's a wild card here and it's iran. nobody needs to forget that iran will be major issue president obama will have have to wrestle with. >> i want to thank you. we also have breaking news now. you can almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. the ravens beat the new england patriots for the afc championship and are heading to the super bowl. they set the stage for history making match up. jim played quarterback for a string of nfl teams. it's the first time in history this has happened so brother on brother match up is clear to be a story line in the lead up to the game. we'll have a lot more coming up. more inauguration coverage ahead. let us know what you think. follow me on twitter right now. i'll be tweeting tonight. next, how has president obama changed the country and how has washington changed the president? is this the same man who he was four years ago? [ male announce
-- creepy. >> but look at that togetherness. >> we did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what change? two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important like climate change fall down the scale. the second, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions,
. >> what about if the president has to choose? gun control -- marco rubio on the republican side, putting forth, it fits well with what the president has to say. >> i think immigration reform is easier. that doesn't mean it's less important, but it's easier, gun safety and gun control will probably come first. that said, it's going to be a heavier lift on gun suppliers. >> you must know a lot about both sides of this, that an immigration deal can get done? not just a weak around the edges kind of thing, but a real long-term fix? >> i believe it will get done. i believe the american people on november 26th gave a mandate for congress to get it done. that's why you see people from both parties speaking out in favor of immigration. >> when we got to the state of texas, in particular, they said within two presidential cycles, the red state would effectively become more democratic and turn purple. do you see that happening? >> i do. for three reasons. texas has done better economically than most states. we had a real influx of folks moving in from other states that are moderating texas, and be
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
something which may be against his nature and try to reach out to republicans, work with maybe marco rubio on immigration, and try to have a real legacy. >> i think your former boss saying, i have political capital to spend and i'm going to spend it. do you see the same for president obama? >> i do. and the interesting thing is, mandates are that which you create as the president. you can create more and do more if you do well. if the economy comes back and you can convince people to come with you. but there's a major issue, iran. iran is an issue the president is going to have to wrestle with in a serious way. >>> we have breaking news now, can you almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. because just moments ago, the ravens beat the patriots and are heading to the super bowl. the 49ers inched out theoppon t theopponents for the trip to the super bowl. jim harbaugh played for a string of nfl teams. he followed in the foot i steps of his father. it's the first time in history this has happened, so the brother on brother matchup is clear to be a heavy story line in a leadup to the game. w
a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi
clinton is being talked about big time in the democratic side, two republican senators, marco rubio and rand paul also talking about it. i've talked to rand paul myself. he has not denied that he's not thinking about it. listen to the way he addressed hillary clinton. >> i think you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11 and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: so you saw there, pretty pointed against hillary clinton, also saying that it's a failure of leadership. trying to sort of give her a backhanded compliment, appreciating her taking responsibility but clearly laying the blame at her feet himself. she made clear, she didn't really actually answer his question. it was clear she sort of -- the look on her face told it all. but she said, i'm secretary of state. we have thousands of people working in our building. it's their job to read the cables and that real
have marco rubio on the same page as chuck schumer. yes, we told you pigs are in the air, and senator schumer has high hopes for this proposal. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> but like everything else in washington, not everyone is on board. take republican senator mike lee. he quickly issued this statement in opposition to the gang's plan. here's what he said. reforms to our complexy and dysfunctional immigration system should not in any way favor those who came here illegally over the millions of applicants who seek to come here lawfully. the problem is without reform, there are 11 million people who are undocumented who are living in this country right now, and you can't just support them all. that's why everyone has hit a big wall until the pigs started flying today. miguel marquez spoke to some young people today, and here are their stories. this issue is very personal. >> three yo
base, by the tea party. marco rubio is on the same senate foreign relations committee and had a very different tone and different question. i think he very smartly decided he did not want the narrative to be a 2016 hillary versus rubio. he wanted it to be about the substance. >> good to see you both. larry, sorry i mispronounced your name. thank you. forgive me. appreciate it. hillary clinton might say hello again soon. take a look at hillary clinton throughout the years. and here is what else we are working on this hour. >> all this cold weather may have you looking for ways to warm up. but before you try swigging a beer consider this. having alcohol in your system can increase your chances of hypothermia. plus a new report says binge drinking can cause more liver and brain damage than casual drinking. >>> manti ta'o is speaking out and the women he thought was connectic ke kekua speaks out. >>> we hear from one lawmaker taking the matter into her own hands. her plan to curb gun violence. this is "newsroom" and it is happening now.

about possibly running for president. marco rubio, and rand paul. they prefer a more muscular foreign policy, and rand paul, of course the son of ron paul, thinking the u.s. is involved in too things, it too many crisis. we have a number of new members on the house committee, and they have been warned, as dana barb reported this morning, noted they had to be told by the chairman of the house committee to be respectful. he was concerned, perhaps, that some of them were going to try to make a names for themselves perhaps inappropriately. >> and the secretary is now being seated. you see the photographers there. dana bash is on capitol hill, walk us through it, the senator from new jersey will open, and then what happens. >> that's right, he will have a statement, and then the ranking republican will as well, and then we will hear from secretary clinton. generally these hearings go on and on. and bob menendez is starting now. >> let's listen. >> since the full senate has not passed the committee resolution officially seating members, i want to ask unanimous consent of members to particip
strong statements along the line of what senator ran paul did, to a certain degree marco rubio on the senate side. i do expect more of the same. let's see if she responds in more specific detail to some of those specific allegations. i didn't hear, you know, her go -- she says she really wasn't involved in that decision, the controversial decision to ask the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, to appear on the five talk shows five days or so after the attack on 9/11 of last year. she really said she had no role in that. that was a white house decision. i suspect we'll be hearing more about susan rice, what she said, that's coming up before the house foreign affairs committee. >> of course, as everyone knows, this is hillary clinton's final acts, one of them. do you think this in any way tarnishes that record? >> no. i think she will go forward and she's widely respected. i think she's going to take -- obviously leave the state department. john kerry, once he's confirmed, i think he will be confirmed, he has his own confirmation hearings before the senate foreign
you to listen to what senator marco rubio, a member of the senate committee, what he said today at the hearing with john kerry. >> north korea announced that they are developing a weapon that can reach the united states of america and i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of states sponsored terrorism and i hope we'll reverse that. >> you were there about five years ago when the relationship at least seemed to be improving. and what about under the young leader jim jong-un. he has come into office and has been there nearly a year now and has followed his father's hard line, military force, pulling rockets, missile, satellite, nuclear program into their military program. and that is a bit of a worry. also people who are trying to figure out which way to go forward, it looks like he's trying to prove himself as a young leader and he is young and has old military around him and he's trying to project himself on the world stage. so i think the interesting thing will be is there any hope of resumption of the u.s., china, japan, those talks with
. this is the most diverse generation in american history. i think what marco rubio is doing now, going around to grassroots republicans around the country, talking to talk radio about what it is going to take to modernize the way republicans think about immigration, and think about reaching out to the hispanic population, which is, you know, it is -- over 40%. the millennial generation is 40% nonwhite. and the majority -- minority in that group is hispanic. we have to think, how are we going to connect to this generation, how are we going to get back to what george bush did in 2004, earn 30% of that vote. let's get back to that place. >> it has been on a downside through mccain and romney. probably believed the first option is something on immigration, in this congress. john, to you on jindal specifically. is he just positioning himself for 2016 with this type of rhetoric? >> yes. >> simple answer. >> that's the simple true answer. i mean, look, part of what is disingenuous about the speech, he spends a lot of time running down washington, saying -- running down the federal dwo government. he
, four democrats, charles schumer, dick durbin, and republicans include john mccain and marco rubio. it includes pathway to citizenship provided the borders are secured. reforming the current system to attract the best and brightest. an employment verification system. improving the process for admitting workers in the future. all four of those things could be a huge stumbling block. it comes one day before the president himself announces his own immigration proposal. spoke earlier with congressman luis gutierrez, a democrat from illinois. and congressman mario diaz-balart, a republican from the state of florida. here's what he said. congressman, gutierrez, i'm going to begin with you if i can. you met with the president on friday. did he know this was coming? of that list that we've talked about, points that are likely in this proposal, what do you think is the biggest sticking point? >> well, look, he did know, and the important thing of friday's meeting, quite honestly, is that the president said he's going to make this his top priority, his number one priority. just so we have it
this path to citizenship would take. there are certain things that republican senator marco rubio wants in this, that they put in this measure. and so, you know, i think there would be a little bit of difference from what the white house would want versus this plan. having said that, i think that people who really want to get immigration reform done, and this is the moment, because by a 3-1 margin republicans lost hispanic voters in the last election, so people who want to get something done are saying to the white house, you know, step aside, let this get some velocity on its own, and then eventually you can get involved. but don't brand it as president obama's proposal. >> let's get reaction before the event comes out, a preview of the debate about to come. anna navarro is a republican strategist. dan stein is the president of fair, the federation for american immigration reform. dan, i'll start with you. this has been an issue which conservative republicans said no, anything that grants legal status or citizenship to someone who crossed into the country illegally is amnesty. is it a
to comprehensive immigration reform, i think the president can work with senator marco rubio. but what about on climate change? what about same-sex marriage? is there going to be cooperation in those two areas? >> number one, on same-sex marriage, the president hasn't thrown any weight behind legislation or for repealing the legislation that paul's because, bill's boss signed the defense of marriage act. >> the justice department -- let me interrupt. the justice department is no longer defending the defense of marriage act. >> and it's going to go to a supreme court case as well and that's probably when we'll find out the future of that. the initiative in play that prompted many of the questions. wolf, i think the real key thing here and we'll hear about this today was speaker boehner. one of the changes now is it's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change
